Ha Foz. Remember what I said Not all information is in GeoVic. Trove is another source, and old government papers or some books. Eg. the one I read 300 pages long. My old Pop stated. History repeats is self over and over again.

Got the Trilobite maps paid for and downloaded. I downloaded all the Victorian geological overlays info and also all the gold and mineral overlays.

What a beast of a resource.

Thanks, AussieDigs.

I like how you can leave a trail of where you go and also the function of a voice telling you what soil types you are standing on as you walk or drive over it.

Are you fluent in it`s operation ? I am trying to work out how to identify what all the colourings mean on the maps. I can`t find a legend or menu button to tell me what they all stand for. There are colours in the overlays for different minerals and also boundaries of parks and Aboriginal heritage sites ,but i don`t know what i am looking at.
Plenty of info to be had with this app. The import / export files are foreign to me. Never heard of the terms GIS layers or Geojson files or ArcGis or Qgis and would have no idea how they work. I am just a simple man with simple needs. I only want to see the gold, quartz and iron overlays and only want to know what the colours mean on the maps so i can work out a strategy of the best places to look in the areas i am interested in.

Any small bit of advice is much appreciated.

Thanks .
FOZ

Cool FOZ, just paying it forward. Northeast put me on to it. thumbsup

Yep, tap on it to get info on the terrain, then tap on it and it will give you more details.

Thanks ,AussieDigs.

Still trying to work out how to overlay a map with roads on it over what you have in that screenshot. Is it possible to do that ?

Also FOZ, if you loaded this to an iPhone or an Android you dont have to pay again to load the same app and overlays to other phones/pads as long as its the same operating system if you get my drift. Easy to do. If you do and need to know how just ask..

This is a shot of my area. You can see roads and tracks just that they are not named.

Yep, great app.

Top left you have the button you press to choose the map layer. Apple maps, satellite imagery, downloaded maps, etc.

And depending on which one you choose you will end with one of these.

The second button down is the information layer. Gold, silver, deep leads, whatever it is you have downloaded.

I always choose Plot Map View Only instead of Plot Full Data set. It means you might only plot 15 points instead of thousands - just saves a bit of time.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the replies, fellas.

Where i go to has plenty of dirt roads leading in and out of the bush . I was trying to get the road names on the same map as the geo detailed map ,but i suppose if i switch between maps as i hone in on an area of interest, it will work itself out. I`ll have a go at it this weekend. The weather is shocking up my way ,so it looks like i might be staying indoors all weekend.

Mastering it ,now. Worked out how to mark a location ,name it ,get it`s co-ordinates ,get all the geo details on the soil types and mining lease details and even managed to email it to myself.
What a fun little tool.

It`s been awhile since i used Geovic and am trying to work out where you find the legend with the meanings of the letters i see on parcels of land ,such as Ls , Pf or Lbr etc etc . I don`t know what they mean .

I am also struggling to find if you can detect on something called dissected uplands.

Is there anyone here who could possibly point me in the right direction ,please .

Thanks.

Glad I found this thread. Geovic hasn't worked for me for the last couple of days and I thought I must be doing something wrong. I get the message: "Could not create map engine mapengine.selection undefined".

But now I know the site has a habit of misbehaving I guess I'll just wait patiently for someone to fix it.

Hi Flute, I've been having trouble with GeoVic as well, but it started working again late last night.

Just checked and Goevic (reg) seems to be working OK.
Might have to reset comp/wifi ..... you know the old switch it off and then back on.... how's that for tech advice eh.

On a more serious note, many people seem to have great hacks/advise on Geovic, trilobite and other mapping resources..... might be good if they had their own Forum heading here under Gold Maps & Resources to make it easier to reference them .... think a lot gets lost otherwise.

Thanks, Teemore. " Do a re-boot" is the first thing a geek tells you. Like checking a fuse in the car instead of dismantling it when something goes wrong.

Turned it on this morning and it half works, so i will give you half a point for the advice !!!
